Our flight from Reno to Denver was delayed by a lot! We ended up getting home finally at 3am 😳. This meant we didn’t wake up until after 10 and it was already in the 80’s and was quickly going up (95 today)- so my kiddo and I decided to put his long run off until Monday. •
•
I hit the mill later in the day and did a fun little progression (8:41, 8:41, 7:41, 7:41, 6:40, 6:40). •
•
I don’t know about you all, but I have to do some kind of speed play when I’m on the mill- otherwise I get too bored! Also I think it’s hard on my hips to go the same speed and same incline for very long. ————————————————————————

4 easy paced miles on tired legs (that was a hard hill workout yesterday!)
Since it’s our last day here, I thought I’d share my version of, “facts you didn’t even know you wanted to know about Lake Tahoe, but now you’re glad you do”:
•
1️⃣ Lake Tahoe is home to “Tahoe Tessie” a lake dwelling creature that Jacques Cousteau alluded to when he said, “the world isn’t ready for what was down there.” 🐉
2️⃣ Legends surrounding dead bodies in the lake gave it the name “the grave.” It’s said to be a dumping ground for Mafia. 🧟‍♂️
3️⃣ Geologist Josiah Whitney theorized that Lake Tahoe was formed from a massive earthquake where a center block of land collapsed between two faults.
4️⃣ Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America. It’s 191.1 square miles and holds 39.75 trillion gallons of water.💦
5️⃣ Lake Tahoe is the 2nd deepest lake in the US- the entire Empire State Building would fit!🏙
6️⃣ It’s 2 million years old! 😳
7️⃣Mark Twain accidentally started a forrest fire in the shores of Lake Tahoe.🔥

Happiest of weekends runners!!

6 very hilly miles! I just stuck near the cabin today because I was more crunched for time AND because I had been eyeing the crazy hills since I got here!! I hit 850 feet elevation gain and went up and down all the hills in the neighborhood. One was so big that I could barely walk up it 😳. A couple of older gentlemen yelled, “oh to be young again” at me as I ran by. It was funny, but also true! I’m so thankful for my healthy body even though I’m not really young (then again, it’s all perspective- right?!) •
P.S.- that’s totally a sunburn I’m sporting-whoops!⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰

3 hilly and slippery miles including:
✔️sandy slippery ground
✔️Lots of rocks •
✔️Just about 200 ft incline per mile today (600 total)
✔️A lost nephew (the whole family came along to hike and the route was a little confusing and so people got spread out.)
✔️Nephew found- hallelujah 🙌🏼
✔️Pretty scenery!
Fun times! We are now off to a sunset dinner boat cruise- should be a blast!

This was a really fun path that wound around a beautiful forrest of trees and ended at the beach. We went off the path a little bit and found a ghost town (boarded up buildings, a church, and cabins)-so strange! •
•
I ran with my brother and hubby for part of the time, and my parents took all of the little nieces and nephews along the path for a nice walk while we ran. It was a family affair- so much fun!

5 easy miles. No clue on pace because I hit lap instead of pause when I stopped to take pics. I was somewhere in the 9’s, but who really cares? I kept it slow and easy and that’s what matters 👍. I try not to ever look at pace on my easy days while I’m running anyway- the pace doesn’t matter. What matters is the effort that you’re putting into it (which can be a totally different pace depending on the day). Some days I literally tune completely out and get so into my audiobook or podcast that I completely forget I’m even running 😴.

I am headed off to Lake Tahoe today to meet up with my two brothers, their families, and my parents. I’m so excited! I’ve never been there before! If you know of any cool things to do or trails to hike/run- send them my way! Looking forward to some memories!!

Long run done ✅. •
•
I ran with my #1 kiddo and @my.runstagram.life. We hit some easier trails and chatted away the first 6 miles. The 2nd 6 miles we spread out a little (as Kim had some MP miles to do) and then we hooked up for the last two slower again. Easton ran circles around the parking lot after we were done just to make sure he got to 15, love his determination! Meanwhile I was blinded by sweat and sunscreen in my eyes and yelling at him to use his shirt to wipe off with, fun times 😂.

I’ve got some laundry and errands to do because we leave for Lake Tahoe on a Monday- whoop whoop 🙌🏼🙌🏼!!

5 miles around the lake today. I did 1 slow, 1 moderate (7:24), 1 slow, 1 moderate (7:03), and 1 slow. I got a massage yesterday and really had her beat the heck out of my calf! I taped it this morning and it felt really good! •

Hope you all have a wonderful day- TGIF!!!

To run or not to run, that is the question 🤔.
——————
I always think it’s interesting learning when people decide to run or decide to rest when faced with injury/illness. I think there’s no right answer, you’ve got to do what’s best for YOUR body. It’s hard to know some of the time though! ——————
My left calf is still hurting and I’ve been feeling sick since after my run yesterday (ears, throat, and tired). I usually run unless it actually hurts. Today I could run without pain if I kept my stride short and pace slow. I could tell that if I pointed my toe at all that it didn’t make my calf happy. Also, I feel like I sweat a lot more when I’m fighting something off, but it makes me feel like I’m shedding some toxins. I actually like to run when I’m sick as long as I keep it slow (and there’s no fever or vomiting). Everyone is SO different though. What do you all use as factors to determine whether or not you run?

Took it to the track today! My younger son and I were going to do a 5K today, but he’s been sick this week and coughing so hard, we decided not to sign up. I still had my fun outfit, so just sported it off to the football team practicing at the HS today 😂. WO deets:
🎇2 mile warm up @ 9:04 and 8:28
🎆1 mile repeats @ 6:25, 6:05, 6:17, and 6:07
🎇200m walking recoveries in between each (not included in overall pace).
🎆No cool down because I’m a bum and felt like walking to the car would be good enough (my left calf started hurting and I just wanted to walk/stretch it rather than run longer).

As soon as I started running, I knew my body was in the need for a nice and SLOW recovery run on some flatter ground, so that’s what I gave it! Those climbs yesterday were tough, but worth it. •
For some reason my neighborhood celebrates the 4th on the 3rd every year, not quite sure why 🤷🏻‍♀️. So, tonight is a huge fireworks show put on by the golf course. We’ll be having a BBQ and some ice cream sundaes before the show with the hubby’s family! Also, I’m taking the kids to an afternoon showing of Jurassic World- so excited! It’s going to be a FUN day 🤗!

Woke up early and hit the trails this morning. Ran with my son and listened to some classic James Taylor while battling some crazy hills. 1001 ft elevation with over 400 in the first mile 🤪. I also was blasting the music hoping to scare off the mountain lions! This trail is called Lion’s Lair for a reason!! 👀We got some beautiful views at the top that made it all worth it! •
•
Also, I don’t know if I’ve ever been so proud as when my son said, “Mom, we should have done that twice!” And that was AFTER he tripped going down and was all scraped up! Ahhh- the things that warm my heart 😊.
•
Happy Happy Monday!!! Make this week incredible!
